Frank Robinson pleases his nonexistent boss

The Washington Nationals have agreed to keep Frank Robinson on for another year.

The Nationals have no owner. They don't have a new stadium in place. They supposedly have a GM, but it's really just Jim Bowden.

Robinson will return to bring his unique style of ... well, it's a unique style of something. A unique style of being very grouchy. But I've heard that Frank Robinson is a "man's man". But I don't want to be like Frank Robinson. I'd like to have people like me.

Do I sound bitter? You're reading a kid who was so excited when his hometown team acquired Robinson to play for the Dodgers in 1972. I learned then that baseball players can get old and washed up despite being famous.

Wow, I didn't realize that Frank Robinson played a season for the Dodgers. But I was only 4 that year. And then he played for the Angels the year after that. Huh. So I guess he didn't do anything Steve Finley-esque for you that year, Bob?

Frank Robinson played like the Angels version of Steve Finley for the Dodgers.
